    there are no dials on this machine, it is all button/digital. i have disconnected the vent to eliminate that problem but it continues to heat for a minute or so and then cool down. i figured it had to be a part or the control board is going bad. i would appreciate any suggestions cause I'm fairly handy and would like to fix it myself without spending a ton of money or changing out numerous parts. thanks

    The dryer stop heating and I found the problem to be the ignitier which I replced. Now it starts heating but after a few minutes hot air stop coming out. I replaced the gas valve coils but still the problem reamians.

    What should I look into next and where can I find helping videos or instructions.

    Thanks in advance for your help

Blower motor relay is bad or the dials are bad
heres a way to check the dials
turn off the gas and run the dials if at anytime the dials stick during its cycle then you know this is the fault this usually the commen issues of all dryers the dials just wear out and so parts just dont work

also check the door switch this could be an issue why it gets cold clean out all vents and filters after "every use"

Problem with the Maytag Neptune MDG6700A Gas Dryer WHEN STARTED HEATS UP THEN NO HEAT AT ALL. MAYTAG MDG6700AWW


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

When the dryer heats for few minutes and then it won't work it means that the thermostat is bad and needs replacement. This part is located on the blower wheel housing inside the duct, you can also check this part for continuity before replacing. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer heats up for a few minutes then stops heating. any ideas? thanks!


This is usually the dryer coils have failed. They tend to fail as they heat up. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a video on replacing the dryer coils.
You will also find videos of disassembling most style dryers at the same site.

Hi!!

I seems like you have a plugged up filter and/or an obstruccion in the exhaust hose/pipe.

Remove and clean lint filter, also remove exhaust hose/pipe from back of dryer and remove any lint accumulated. Check also the exhaust hole in the dryer.

Don't forget to rate this post. Good Luck!!

Maytag Neptune MDG 5500 AWQ heats sporatically


your dryer has a safety feature that it will not run or heat when the door is opened. It is so no gas fumes are exhauseted into your home. Once the safety is engaged, It will not allow the dryer to restart for a short while. It should clear itself after only a few minutes. Hope this helps, good luck.

Check the lint tubing and also for lint underneath the dryer. There is a blockage somewhere for this to happen. This is a built in safety feature for gas dryers that others don't have.

Quits heating


umm. what was original problem that made you change coils to begin?? no heat i would imagine.dont rush to judgement thatyour fix didnt work, if your running the dryer empty to test your repair,its quite possible that the dryer is going to heat to desired temp quickly, and take a while to cycle back on. throwsome wet clothes in machine and test it then.
